Massive, Sharp, Marples Bevel-Edge Paring Chisel.
This chisel is 13in long overall. It has a very thin, tapered blade with very fine, almost knife-edge lands. The top of the chisel is a mess of pitting but the back is lapped clean and flat and the bevel is quite sharp. The handle is perfect. It's not the prettiest but it should be a great worker for fine paring work.

Massive, Excellent Witherby Socket Chisel.
This chisel is 1 1/2in wide and over 16in long overall. It's marked Witherby, Winsted , Conn. The blade is nearly perfect. There is not one speck of pitting anywhere, front or back, As found it was covered in a light coating of preservative which kept it in new-old-stock condition for all these decades. The handle is unused. I hesitate to call it a framing chisel because the blade is nicely tapered, almost like a big paring chisel. It's more like a slightly small slick more than anything else. Regardless of what it's called, it's exceptionally clean and should be a great worker.

This Sheffield-made chisel is nearly 14in long. It has a nice stout handle and thick, tapered blade. There is some pitting on the back, as you see in the photos.

This plane was made by George Hathersich in Manchester, England between 1797-1843 according to Goodman. The plane exhibits design elements of early British planes including the deep cove on the step and heavy, flat chamfers. It has an especially steep middle pitch blade for hardwoods. The plane has been used quite a bit as evidenced by the short blade, but there is little wear and no damage. It's clearly been appreciated and well cared-for. While the blade is short there is some good useful life left in it. It's a common profile and a replacement blade will be easy to come up with without too much bother should you use up the original. An early, quite useful molder.

Early Hand-Forged 6in Outside Calipers.
This is a perfectly functional pair of outside calipers that was clearly hand-forged and very well made. The hinge is just tight enough to make them easy to adjust but stay set. They have a nice honest, even patina and look great.

5/8in Ovolo Molding Plane.
This plane was made by J. Dunn in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in 1821 according to Goodman. The plane was owned by an "R. WHITE" who was so proud of the plane he stamped his name on it at least 50 times. The blade is clean but needs a grind to make it match the sole. The plane itself is nice and clean with some wear but no damage that would affect user.

Early Flat Ovolo Molding Plane by Ts. Fairbairn.
This is a 3/5in wide flat ovolo molder with a clear maker's stamp at the toe "Ts. Fairbairn" This mark does not appear in Goodman's book on British platemakers, nor in Elliot's on American makers, but I'm almost positive it's British. It's in exceptional condition and has all of the qualities of an early 19th century molding plane including he broad flat chamfers and heavy gouge cuts at the transition points. The high wear point at the tip of the ovolo is boxed. It has a nice clean blade. it's a high quality, early molder by an unknown maker.

Extra-Curvy Quirk Ogee and Astragal Molding Plane.
This plane was made by Thomas Coulee who worked in Birmingham from 1831-1842. It's an especially well-made plane and survives in excellent condition today. The body is especially clean and crisp and shows light wear. The middle pitch blade has minimal pitting and is quite long. The plane cuts a profile approx. 1 1/4in wide by 3/4in deep. The blade projects evenly across the entire profile and should be pretty easy to tune to working condition. It cuts an especially nice profile and is in excellent condition.
